German sales companies Media Luna New Films and ARRI Worldsales have unveiled a raft of new titles being premiered at Cannes’ Marché du Film,
Media Luna’s Ida Martins told ScreenDaily that she will have market premieres of four films:
- Argentinean Marco Berger’s second feature Hawaii about the relationship between childhood friends;
- Hong Kong film-maker Scud’s fifth feature Voyage [pictured], which saw him filming in Europe and Mongolia for the first time;
- Diederik Ebbinge’s Rotterdam Audience Award-winner Matterhorn;
- Jonas d’Adesky’s Three Kids about a trio of 12-year-olds beginning a new life after the earthquake in Port-au-Prince.
In addition, Martins has just signed deals to represent another five films, ranging from Alberto Morais’ sensitive children’s film The Kids From The Port and Benjamin Johns’ crime drama The Traveler to Ingo Biermann’s love story between two women Nordland and Ecuadoran director Victor Arregui’s The Facilitator.
Media Luna will also have a promo of footage from the first film to be produced from East Timor: Beatriz’s War co-directed by Bety Reis and Luigi Acquisto.
